Thanks to Superman fan Danny Fernando Rassa and his photographer friend Magda Hidalgo, we present to you these images of a Christopher Reeve "Superman" statue located within the grounds of the Bancolombia building in the city of Medellin (Colombia, South America).

Inspired by Auduste Rodin's "The Thinker", the monument in honor of Christopher Reeve, is the creation of sculptor and artist Nadin Ospina.

In an interview posted (in Spanish) on the Bancolombia website (the largest commercial bank in Colombia) the artist explains: “Superman is the king, he's iconic, indestructible. Besides he has very interesting connotations: he is a poor little orphan, extra-terrestrial and with some very complex psychological problems and emotional difficulties. He is a very interesting personality."
